After the news emerged today that Rangers have signed American Matt Polster, fans took to Twitter to welcome the player to Ibrox.
The 25-year-old has joined from MLS outfit Chicago Fire, and is capable of playing as both a fullback and a midfielder. The one-cap United States international has been praised for his passing ability by some fans, and promises to be quite an asset to Steven Gerrard in Glasgow.
Overall, the fans were quick to welcome Polster to the club, and look forward to seeing him play. However, some fans did highlight the negative to this deal, which is the fact that captain James Tavernier may be on the way out of Ibrox before the end of the month. The 27-year-old right-back has caught the eye of Premier League outfit Southampton, and the arrival of a new fullback looks slightly ominous.
This is what the fans had to say:
